PCS-SEG Luncheons CANCELED until September 2nd 2020

PCS-SEG Members,

First of all, we hope that you, your families and loved ones are well as we navigate through these unprecedented times. President Trump & Governor Newsom issued an executive order (March 2020) urging the public to cancel non-essential gatherings. The health, safety, and well-being of our members is our chief concern.

Accordingly, the PCS-SEG Officers have agreed to cancel April & May Luncheons. We will, likewise, take our customary Summer break (June-August).  We are tentatively planning to resume our PCS-SEG Luncheons September 2nd 2020. Please check the PCS-SEG website for updates.

May you and your families stay safe until we meet again!!!

Blessings to all!!

Gary, Bill, Christine, Kathy, Catherine & Christopher

Pacific Section Meeting – Geophysical Session – Call for Abstracts

Fellow Geoscientists and PCS-SEG members,

Along with the PSAAPG and SEPM, the Pacific Coast Section-SEG is co-hosting the 2020 Pacific Section annual meeting, April 4-8 at the Mandalay Beach resort; Oxnard, CA. The PCS-SEG is sponsoring a technical session and we are actively seeking talks related to seismic-based reservoir characterization, 2D and 3D seismic applications, seismic acquisition and processing methods, AVO/Inversion studies, solid earth seismology and earth systems as well as talks related to the topic of induced seismicity. The abstract format is AAPG style, so is not overly onerous. The deadline for abstract is fast approaching, but you still have plenty of time to get that abstract in. If you have questions regarding a topic and/or are wondering if your talk would fit in this session, please feel free to contact Gary Myers @ 661-246-6184 or by email at gamyers@aeraenergy.com.

Abstracts can be submitted here:  http://psaapgconvention.org/conventions/2020/ [psaapgconvention.org]
